As you may be aware, many community organizations have shut their doors due to the financial burden created by COVID-19, including lost revenue and increased program costs. The London Badgers have experienced the impact of the pandemic first-hand.  

We recently received confirmation that we are amongst 668 sport and recreation organizations nationally to be provided with grant support through Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. We are beyond grateful to receive this news and know how positive an impact it will have on sport and recreation organizations, and ultimately, on kids across the country. 

With Jumpstart’s support, we’ll be able to will go a long way in easing the financial burden of some of our families while allowing the London Badgers to continue to operate.  This will provide an opportunity for kids to grow physically within the sport of baseball but more so a space of stability for them grow mentally without outside distractions.
